I am still quit confused about what this establishment is trying to be, but we had a pleasant meal there. The reason for my confusion is that it very much looks and feels like a pub inside, however when my other half tried ordering only fries to eat we were told in no uncertain terms that it was a restaurant...

.. by which I mean that one of us had a pretty dull chicken (which was supposed to be in a vol-au-vent but wasn't) and the other a great beef stew. As others have said, it is a but pricey but the service -even though they were busy - was excellent. Very good beer list too.

Try to get a table at the canal! Good food and a very friendly staff (father and his very professional son!). Prices a bit high, but we definitely enjoyed our meal.

We found café restaurant Aba-Jour, following a pleasant tow path between Zuivelbrug and Krommewalbrug. As it was a sunny day and there were some tables outside, we decided to have a drink. The location, under a tree and directly over the water of the Leie river, is very pleasant. We watched the tourist boats go by and, over the railing,... More

Excellent choice of beer, good service, place is not cheap, but you will have a good lunch (portions are big) of good quality. I recommend to try beef stew with beer here.
